I Spy Picture Book
Materials Needed:

Pre-Saturday Instructions: Look around your house for a variety of items that would work well for an I Spy Picture. Take a picture and email it to Heather Larson at hbabylarson@hotmail.com by Thursday midnight (I am going to have them printed at Costco Friday morning).  Please leave it full resolution (don’t reduce it) so we get the clearest pictures.  I will make 1 copy of each picture for everyone that participates.  So if say 10 people send me photos then at the Super Saturday I will hand you a set with 10 different pictures to put into a book for your kids to search through.  Be creative and have fun!!
